Why God keeps secrets?
Does He really need to keep secrets? Yes. He has secrets. God keeps secrets for so many reasons. God keeps secrets and makes them a mystery. A mystery no one can grasp without His approval. It is impervious to state that our God is a secretive God.
Proverbs 25:2 – It is the glory of God to conceal a thing: but the honour of kings is to search out a matter.
God keeps secrets that no one will ever know and understand without His mandate.
No one can be compared to Him in His honor and magnificence. Therefore, it only becomes natural for Him to conceal things since He is a glorious God. His glory lies in all known and especially with unknown things. We marvel on amazing things that we discover and understand everyday. But as soon as we fathom the unsolved it becomes ordinary and boring. We like new and we get thrilled with cutting-edge inventions and discoveries. God remains to be mysterious as it is His innate characteristic. God keeps us amaze and intrigue. God keeps secrets, a bucket full of it which is bottomless and never ending. We are suppose to be bewildered of His grandiosity and He is very effective doing so throughout history.
God Without His secrets will be less interesting for us and all will be exposed; and that is contrary to His being. It is His glory to conceal that is why God keeps secrets from us and even to His angels. Only Jesus knew Him well more than anyone. Like so, Jesus was also God’s greatest kept secrets.
Mathew 11:27 -All things are delivered unto me of my Father: and no man knoweth the Son, but the Father; neither knoweth any man the Father, save the Son, and he to whomsoever the Son will reveal him.
We will not be an effective servant of God if we know exactly when will be the second coming and know the end of our lives. We will use it for our own sake and somehow cheat judgment. We may do things differently since we have certain knowledge that we shouldn’t know. If we know His secrets can we really keep our composure and not be disturbed with all those informations. After all, He is our Creator who kept things hidden for a reason.
God keeps secrets same thing with man.
Generally speaking, man keeps something buried and private when it is something embarrassing or when a wrongdoing was performed. Oftentimes, the purpose of hiding things is to avoid the consequences such as shame, punishment, potential corruption of our reputation or we are just simply trying to protect someone we love. However, when God keeps secrets and things unknown there are not an expression of injustice but the opposite. The secret things of God are the greatest and the most marvelous things in the universe. Our God is the greatest and the best.
All things about Him is definitely the supreme among all. Hence, God Himself has the greatest secrets of all. No one can ever understand the mysteries of God unless He allows it to whom He wishes to unveil with.
If He kept it hidden. Who can find it? Who dares to find it without His permission? If He hid it, we will never find it. Who are we to find His secrets in our own?
Obvious things like the heavens and the firmament declare the glory of God. But the secrets of God is far more greater in glory. It will blow our minds away.
Psalms 19:1 -The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament
sheweth his handywork.
